Martha Raddatz, who moderated the debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan, is being criticized by the Right for insisting on answers to tough questions. But that is what the media are supposed to do and that is why the media have a special place in our Constitution. The Right have browbeaten the media in recent years, falsely accusing the “lamestream media” of a liberal bias. The GOP have become so accustomed to the browbeaten media and the propaganda of FOX News, unfair and unbalanced, that they have forgotten how to respond to a professional reporter doing her job.
